Nah, what they probably were referring to is a private tutorial website called W3Schools: https://www.w3schools.com/css/. Not associated with W3C in any way, and their tutorials are not always spot-on.

A couple of thoughts:

* "Thanks to W3" can mean either
     * "Thank you for the World Wide Web [for providing a medium for us to share]" (as in lots of pages linked together... )
     * "Thank you to the Consortium [for providing guidance on standard for 'TInternet]"

* The consortium, and the validator, have no _reponsibility_ for ensuring validity (or accessibility, or even readability)

but, hey..... everyone's got to start somewhere... and 13 validity errors & 8 accessibility issues is not bad for a club website.
